    Visible Ink has three badge makers that you’re welcome to use during our opening hours. If you’re planning on making more than a half dozen badges including large scale projects, you’ll need to supply your own badge parts. Our machines can produce three sizes – 25mm, 35mm, 57mm – for your projects. Parts can be ordered online, for an Australian supplier check Badge-A-Minit (they have all the sizes available for our machines).


We know, that’s a lot of stuff. So how do you get your hands on it? Easy send us an email or use this form and we’ll book some gear for you!

We do have a few conditions: equipment loans are for one week at a time with pick up on a Friday and drop off on a Wednesday during opening hours. It does take a while to sign out our equipment, especially if you’re borrowing some of our larger systems, so please allow ample time to fill out some paperwork. If you haven’t used the equipment before, let our staff know when you book and we’ll give you some tips for how to set it up.
